Creating my arch by having my feet straight and slightly twisting the ground or creating external rotation.  (I would imagine that my toes would be rotating to the outside)

Yeah smash the post tib with lacrosse ball stacked.  All the way up to all the way to the bottom.   No big deal for me really.   HOWEVER
When I smash calcaneus I end up hitting the very outside part of my foot/underneath that goes to the big toe and it does feel rather tender.  Perhaps this blocked feeling is a down stream issue?  I do smash my feet but would be hard to access that spot– kettle bell seems the only thing to access that area.
Yeah banded distraction with Ankle DF is always to the outside — basically simulating knees out.  I have been experimenting with my foot up on chair.  It seems like my range of motion decreases with the typical knee down banded distraction http://www.mobilitywod.com/daily/friday-september-19th-2014/   In order to move my knee forward without lifting the heel I have to put the knee on the ground further behind me almost looking like I am doing a split.
